Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 25 (approximately) whole pecans
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 3 tbs butter, softened and chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 frozen 9 inch pie crust (or you can make your own, just DO NOT bake it first.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. (If you are making your own pie crust do it now, just DO NOT bake it.)
  2. Line the bottom of the pie crust with chopped pecans (reserve the whole pecans).
  3. Place the chopped butter on top of the pecans.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, clove & cinnamon until just combined. Over mixing will cause air bubbles.
  5. Pour the mixture over the pecans and butter.
  6. Top the pie with whole pecans.
  7. Bake the pie for 10 minutes,
  8. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees for half an hour. If the pie crust starts to get too dark, cover the pie loosely with aluminum foil.
  9. Serve warm or when it cools down!
